This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Community.

In this badge bit, you will do 8 oddball points) worth of work in improving a permaculture library that is used for the benifit of others, such as the one at Wheaton Labs. This work would take a skilled worker 8 hours to complete with all their materials already assembled--it will likely take you three times as long.

It can be one thing from this list, or many to add up to 8 oddball points:

 - Organizing the books
 - Creating section titles/labels/signs, such as "fiction" "cooking" "building" "growies" etc
 - Shelving books
 - Making shelves
 - Creating a resource section, for games, tools, etc
 - Creating/managing a check-in/check-out system
 - Bringing bindings of books to the front of the shelves and level with one another
 - Mending broken/riped books
 - Going through the shelves to ensure they were re-shelved correctly
 - Create and stock a mobile or "little free" library
 - Make a directory--or update the directory--of all the books and resources
 - Making chairs and tables for people to read and work at

To qualify for this Badge Bit, you must:
- Describe your library and who has access to it. Link to a thread about that library (create such a thread if it doesn't exist)
- Post a before picture
- Post a during picture (if doing multiple things to add up to 8 oddball points, post a during picture of each project)
- Post an after picture
- this improvement must rack up 8 points by the rules of Oddball points)
